Yesterday was my final day of hard consulting — sorry for skipping the post, by the way. This coming week is tourism in Australia: An open-range zoo, an aquarium, some museums, and so on. Then two more consulting days to cross the t’s and dot the i’s, and back home on August 30.
A few observations after this month of consulting:
I still practiced a ton of manifesting, and did some healing sessions and other useful effects I already knew, but did very little to develop new techniques. When you’re short on time, the useful techniques get practiced, and the not-yet-useful ones don’t.
And yet, I did develop the enlightenment technique with that spirit. So, research wasn’t at a standstill, just much slower, done mostly on train rides, rather than in focused hour-long sessions. I could assist with research, but not drive my own.
Same for writing: I wrote a post almost every day, but made roughly zero progress on my book.
I did not find a magick community here. Not that I looked that hard. I did run into one chaos magician and one freemason, so there is some stuff in Melbourne if you want to look for it. But nothing that got me terribly excited.
But I did make a lot of awesome friends in Melbourne. Circus performers, artists, and otherwise really interesting people. Didn’t tell most of them about magick, though. I don’t want to present it as a religion, but I don’t have the right demonstrations yet to present it as a science. Maybe next year.
Yesterday, after the final bit of consulting, I was pretty exhausted. But today, after napping a few extra hours, I feel recharged, and ready to develop some new magick. I think this month made a nice change of pace, a good way to take a vacation from magick without feeling guilty for wasting the time.
And I have a career recommendation for aspiring mages: Freelance work. When you have a gig, you can take a break from your magick work, and when you don’t have a gig, you can do full-time magick. It works quite well.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
